    I did a race alignment at Thallmans then took the car to TF works who set me up much better. Maybe they weren't used to Z31's though.

    I hear raving reviews about Thalmanns. I've had one of my cars done at TF. The alignment was fine but the way
    they just zip the camber bolts neither was at the recommended torque rating when I verified their work. Both were
    about 10ft/lbs too loose.

    It's been my experience that most professional shops don't torque suspension hardware, rather, they tighten it good enough. If you want things torqued to a specific #, request it. Just sayin.
